I always knew I wanted to have children.
Our bodies are shaped to bear children, and our lives are a working out of the processes of creation. All our ambitions and intelligence are beside that great elemental point.
I got married because I fell in love with this woman. I had a baby with her because we wanted to have children. But that's not because of some philosophical ideal at all, no.
How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid? It must be education that does it.
I want to walk into a room, be it a hospital for the dying or a hospital for the sick children, and feel that I am needed. I want to do, not just to be.
We stand our best chance of leaving a legacy to those who want to learn, our children, by standing firm. In matters of style, hey, swing with the stream. But in matters of principle, you need to stand like a rock.
Self-control means wanting to be effective at some random point in the infinite radiations of my spiritual existence.
The one thing I want to leave my children is an honorable name.
Actors often behave like children, and so we're taken for children. I want to be grown up.
The whole concept of 'grounding' children is utterly stupid - they just go off and rebel and don't like you. When my kids eventually come along, I don't want them to not like me.
I've always wanted to be a spy, and frankly I'm a little surprised that British intelligence has never approached me.
I want to branch out. I want to write. I write poetry. I want to see my children grow up well.
I love working with organizations. I love giving. I want to do more of that. You got to give back. I love helping people, especially children.
Second, there are so many magical places in books that you can't go to, like Hogwarts and Middle Earth, so I wanted to set a story in a place where children can actually go.
That a man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
A lot of parents tell their children that if they want to be an actor, that's fine, but they should do something else first, so they've got something to fall back on. It doesn't work like that, as far as I'm concerned.
As a teenager I was more of an anarchist, but now I want people to thrive and be harmonious.
It was very serious and I wanted to do something really different so there was this comedy called TOP SECRET.
Yes, they wanted me to sign a contract of exclusivity, and I refused.
Before I do a play I say that I hope it's going to be for as short a time as possible but, once you do it, it is a paradoxical pleasure. One evening out of two there are five minutes of a miracle and for those five minutes you want to do it again and again. It's like a drug.
When I was about 5 I think, I desperately wanted to be a pirate and have the hat and everything.
It's true what people say - that actors are the closest thing there is to children. They play.
I don't like guys who will lie down and take it. I want someone who'll fight back. I like people who can argue well.
I want to do very useful buildings and I would like to find a method of producing these buildings through our technology because I think that this is the only way that we will gain wonderful environment easily in the future.
Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
